This house is just amazing! Beautifully appointed with comfortable furniture and tasteful decor. The layout was perfect for our 3 generation family vacation (ages 20 months to 65+).
Our little ones adored the loft area and all the cute stuffed bears, moose, etc. We were glad we brought baby gates to block off the stairways though, as our little ones could climb up and down the steps all day! The living room is spacious and very comfortable as is the downstairs family room which fills the space between the 2 Queen rooms. We enjoyed the deck and the hot tub with the breathtaking view of the lake and mountains...which can also be viewed from inside the house through the walls of windows. The huge porch swing on the lower deck was a nice place to chill, as well.
We rented a boat for one day and had a blast fishing and swimming in this remarkably clean lake. The water is crystal clear! We also swam from the dock. If you come here with little ones, be sure to bring life vests for them as they are required on the dock...this lake is very deep!
We also spent one day at Great Smoky Mountain NP...(a 90 minute drive) and hiked part of the Appalachian Trail.
Come prepared to cook and/or grill as the nearest eatery is at the marina across the lake and gocery stores are not close.
The driveway is very steep with 2 switchbacks, but we had no trouble getting up to the house driving a sedan and a minivan.
If you truly want to GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, this is the place for you! Very peaceful and relaxing...we hated to leave and plan on returning some day.
